Within the Situational Awareness and Cybersecurity Group, your work will take on a central role in this context and you can expect a varied range of tasks in interdisciplinary technology areas. Specifically, you will be dedicated to researching innovative approaches for maritime situational awareness systems and develop them together with our team. These systems use a wide variety of sensor systems and instruments, which are deployed on various platforms like autonomous underwater vehicles, aerial drones or satellites. Depending on the user group, the system will allow access to different instruments, data analysis and information acquisition applications as well as various context-specific visualisation methods.

Become part of our young, cooperative and dynamic team and take on the following tasks:

  • Analysis and evaluation of existing system approaches and architectures
  • Development of concepts for innovative and versatile maritime situational awareness systems
  • Conduction of studies on the feasibility of different system concepts
  • Specification of system architecture and system components
  • Software development of system components
  • Integration of the components into an overall situational awareness system
  • Testing of the system together with instrument and data scientists
  • System verification and validation
  • Publication and presentation of research results

Your qualifications:

  • Completed academic studies (university diploma or master's degree) in computer science (e.g. applied computer science, media informatics), in an engineering-scientific field (e.g. electrical engineering), in a scientific field (e.g. physics) or other courses of study relevant for the job
  • Strong knowledge of common programming paradigms and languages (especially object-oriented and functional languages, such as C++, Java, Python, Scala, Haskell, and/or Rust)
  • Relevant experience in the field of sensor networks or other comparable systems
  • Experience in software and/or systems engineering preferable
  • Experience in conducting research projects with industry and research partners is a plus
  • Strong communication and cooperation skills as well as the ability to work in a team
  • Ability and willingness to acquire missing knowledge at short notice if required 
  • Creativity, initiative and reliability
  • Very good command of the English language both written and spoken
